In this paper, the authors dwell theoretically on the application of Elliptic Curves Cryptography (ECC) for the web and cloud and cloud computing environments. ECC is still in its embryonic utility formation unlike the RSA that has gained much ground in its application on the web security as it offers extensive applications to the various aspects of authentications, e-commerce and mobile phones; but it consumes a lot of power that may not be useful to Smartphones in the context of Mobile cloud computing. Not-withstanding, there is some remarkable deployment of ECC for web security currently on-going. This paper establishes the position and role of ECC in the web computing environment.
